Fusion 360 Techniques for Laser Cutting and CNC Routing

50.00

Every 3rd Weds, 7:00 PM

Laser cutting and CNC routing are ridiculously efficient. They are fast. The raw materials are cheap. With laser cutting or CNC routing you can fabricate small production projects limited only by your imagination and your skills.  

This class is intended to help you develop your digital design skills. We will dive into learning to use the popular Fusion 360 computer aided design (CAD) software. We will learn specific techniques suited to working with sheet materials for making multi-dimensional projects. We will focus on the features of Fusion 360 that can take your laser and CNC router projects to the next level.

This is an intermediate class, please see our beginner class: Intro to Fusion 360 for Makers

About The Instructor:

www.microcarpentry.com Richard Lawler is a software engineer, maker and instructor. I've been making since grade school; I built 3D design software for Apple; and I've been running a CNC on my workbench for 15 years.  When I first learned the laser cutter my imagination exploded, and since then I've been obsessively exploring the possibilities of laser cutting in my projects. With these classes, I'm hoping to share my experience and help other people create things that until now could only exist in their imaginations.
